Audience Reviews for The Swindle

  • Feb 22, 2009
    One of the better Chabrol thrillers of the 80s/90s thanks to it's sly humour and performance by Isabelle Huppert.
    Emily B Super Reviewer
  • Jan 28, 2008
    Light, sympathetic mildly twisted, cynic and amusing film from the french master of intrigue Claude Chabrol.
    Pierluigi P Super Reviewer
